"Queen of the Road" by Doreen Orion

The True Tale of 47 States
22,000 Miles
200 Shoes
2 Cats
1 Poodle
a Husband
and a Bus with a will of Its Own

"Queen of Road" is a hysterical account of a year of travel in a Prevost Bus (and the time leading up to the trip.) Loved it!

I've read that and loved it. I've given it as a gift a few times too. I'm actually reading an Agatha Christie book published about her notebooks. Interesting, but I usually need a good Poirot mystery for my Chrisite fix.
Agatha Christies' Secret Notebooks: Fifty Years of Mysteries in the Making - by John Curran.

I'm reading a couple of B.C. authors right now:

"Adventures in Solitude: What Not To Wear to a Nude Potluck and other Stories from Desolation Sound" by Grant Lawrence

"Bachelor Brothers Bed & Breakfast" by Bill Richardson

And just finished re-reading "The Wars" by Timothy Findley

Neil Gabler's Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination is my most recent read. My wife was reading something about a bunch of shades of gray. I'll live in my fantasy world and she can have her's.

Oh, geez, I've read over 200 books since getting the Kindle a year and a half ago, especially since the advent to borrowing ebooks from the library. Favorites? Oh, pretty much anything by Nevada Barr, Tony Hillerman (of course), Steve Brewer, Margaret Coel, Sue Grafton, Marcia Muller, Connie Shelton, or Michael Connelly (current read). Those are all mysteries. As far as others are concerned, a couple of major standouts are Charles Mann (1491, 2nd edition) and Hampton Sides (Blood and Thunder).

I average about two books a week, and have for most of 50 years. Where would I start...

Lately I been searching the Kindle cheapo book bin at Amazon. 100 books under five bucks or whatever it is.

Check the site below for freebies! The site also has a facebook presence, so they automatically post the newest ones to my site.

Kindle Author | Discover new writers

In addition, check with the larger of the public libraries in your area to see if they're carrying ebooks. I check most of mine out from the Albuquerque / Bernalillo Co. Public Library. It's easy!

Have read the ones in bold.

Am working on a stack on the AS bedside table about airlines that have gone Tango Uniform - Pan Am, Braniff, Pacific Western, and Western.

Have put them away for a bit. Right now I'm reading a lot of current-event magazines like Time and Newsweek because of the upcoming US election.

If you enjoy historical non-fiction, I recently finished Destiny of the Republic about James Garfield. I'm currently reading The President's Club. Both are terrific1
